The following process can be used if you have physical access to the IP500 V2A control unit. This method can be used with a timed reboot, allowing the card upgrade to be done during normal operation hours followed by a reboot outside of normal operation hours.
If the card is being used for Embedded Voicemail, that service is not available while the card is shutdown. Licensed features will continue running for up to 2 hours whilst the card is shutdown.
•! WARNING: You must read and understand all upgrade pre-requisites before upgrading any system.
